Another Orwellian political decision by the U.S. Supreme Political Court today, wherein we learn that love is hate, up is down, good is bad, and it all depends on what focus groups say the meaning is, is.
The only surprise with today’s diktat, which furthers replaces law with politics, is that so many profess surprise at what should have been totally predictable. This is, after all, a SCOTUS that has continually stumbled over the meaning of “Congress shall make no law.” Once again we are invited by nine lawyers in muumuus to accept that language which is as clear as spring water is in fact ambiguous.
The extravagantly misnamed Affordable Care Act, more accurately known as Obamacare, may as well also be known as SCOTUS-Care, as Chief Political Justice John Roberts (D-Supreme Court) has pulled its fat out of the fire twice now for reasons that have nothing to do with law.
As things are going these days, the United States Constitution has about as much effect on how government functions in America as a note passed in study hall. If Supreme Court justices are going to continue to make political rather than legal decisions, we should quit the charade of presidential appointments and Senate confirmations and have these guys and gals elected, like we do with county commissioners.
